Susan,

OH the balloons sooooo precious.  Love love and love the little guys holding them !!  Really just so us.  Being there for each other...knowing we are not alone in this is so very heartwarming.  Thank you so much!

Oh! Thanks Anthony! I was thinking they were at least in that family. In the Southern US states Cicada is much bigger, but most of the bugs down there are it seems. And they make a very loud noise at night in the trees.

Good Morning Lore,

Have to say This cave shot you took is the one I pick for me today.  In the dark cave and looking out into the sunshine beach scene.  This effect just speaks my heart...the dark cave around me for safety and protection.  I need this place so will keep it in my mind’s eye throughout this week.

I have learned through the death of my ex how important it is to make amends even with those that really did you wrong.  I am so grateful we were able to do that years ago because his friendship was just so great.  Much better as friends than married for sure.  The sad thing is his family has totally blown me off all these years....we have been divorced 11 years.

A good friend that knew him is going to the burial with me tomorrow.  Am hoping I can at least get his sister in law to share her phone number so I can go see Kiowa, his precious Shepherd who lives with them now.  That dog was out of control and he hinted around about me taking him “if” anything happened to him.  Really in retrospect I think he knew then something was wrong but had to stay in denial.

This is the kind of thing I would be smoking my head off at the cemetery.  My friend and I will hang back some.  It would be a crummy tribute to him to purposely cut my life off so young  and smoke when his was even younger.  I just thought he would always be there....but guys anybody could just poof....be gone in a moment.  Sigh

Thanks for listening.  May have to write a bit about this

Good morning Love,

I am so sorry you have so much pain right now and wish I could just take it away and make it better. I love the fact that you were reconciled and friends. This is what you must hang onto now. Yes, be in the cave there, watching the waves, the respirations of our planet and mother and home. Just let them wash in and out and carry your heart for a while. In that small cave there is a tide pool that is brimming with life and each time I’ve gone I find something different in there. The sounds and echoes of the water in there are one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard. As lovely and calming as the wind whispering through the old growth in the forest nearby. All these sounds, these moments, I send to you today with hope and peace to calm your mind and soothe your soul. The preciousness of life cannot be quantified in written words. It can only be felt deeply in our hearts and souls. Perhaps we are only as deeply aware of it in moments of loss of a loved one. You are blessed to have come full circle with him, in the reconciliation that you made, and I know this is your treasure now to have this. Be with it and be in the cave. My heart is there with you too my friend. purple_heart
